Well good Saturday morning my fellow Fort Payne Main Street family and let me be the first to say God bless you and God bless America! I have to say there are some really great things that are taking place in our historic downtown area that it will take us into a whole new level of economic growth and revitalization of our Main Street and beyond. There is going to be such an influx of opportunities for all types of business ventures that it is going to be very exciting to be a part of this revolution of our beloved Fort Payne.
Revitalization of historic buildings takes a lot of money, time and planning so with that being said it takes a whole lot of effort by city officials, private owners to make things happen in a positive direction. There are a whole lot of good people that have Fort Payne’s best interest as their common goal. I know without a doubt Fort Payne city, Fort Payne Chamber of Commerce, Fort Payne Main Street and all our business leaders are all on the same page and that is to grow Fort Payne and make it more prosperous than it has ever been.
Just another note on Boom Days and the incredible success of this annual event, if you have never gone please mark your calendar for the third Saturday in September for the 2019 version of this award winning event of Art, Heritage and Music. I have already heard from The fine people at The Alabama fan club to my friends at Roadside Que that it was a great day for business and that’s what we like to hear. Maurey and his team are already planning and working on next years event with plans to make it even better.
Fort Payne Main Street is getting geared up for another year of events and moving ahead, we have some extremely exciting news about an incoming business that will be moving downtown so stay tuned for that announcement. We will be adding new board members and support teams that will make Fort Payne Main Street have the best year ever. When our new board members are in place we will do profiles on each one so you our community can see who is working to make Fort Payne better. With that being said we are moving onward and upward so lets go!
